TierPoint, a U.S. provider of hybrid IT solutions including cloud, colocation and managed services, has completed an expansion of its Hawthorne, New York data center. The $13 million investment adds 13,500 square feet of raised floor space and is the first phase of an expected multiphase data center expansion.

The expanded facility, located outside New York City’s 12-mile blast zone and the 500-year flood zone, now includes over 65,000 square feet of total raised floor data center space and more than 70,000 square feet of customizable business continuity/private suite space, easily accessible for Connecticut, New York and New Jersey clients.

Other facility features would include dual factor, biometrical access control with around-the-clock onsite security; dual utility service feeds with onsite TierPoint controlled substations; independent AB power distribution; N+1 backup generators; 2N chilled water configuration with N+1 CRAH deployment; all designed for supporting up to 350 watts per square foot of raised floor. The data center is carrier neutral with diverse fiber points of entry for redundancy.
